If you’re a lady on a budget, there’s no need to sacrifice style (or loveliness) in your beauty regime. In fact, there are plenty of tricks that can help give you a luxury look without emptying your wallet. Here are the top fifteen dirty little tricks that you absolutely MUST know about to live your best, most beautiful life without the associated price tag.
Quit buying those expensive products to remove your makeup. You can get a better, more gentle, and all-natural remover right at the grocery store. Chemical-based, lab-manufactured products actually strip your skin of its natural oils so, in addition to being expensive, they leave your skin dried out and crackling.
Instead of springing for makeup remover, try extra virgin olive oil. It has a natural combination of vitamins E and A, as well as the same “healthy fat” that avocados have. It will leave you smooth, silky, and make-up free. If you don’t like the feel or smell of the olive oil, coconut oil also works.
Coconut oil is solid at room temperature and will melt to liquid with the heat from your hand. It is a natural moisturizer and anti-fungal; great for the winter when your skin might be extra sensitive due to exposure to the elements. Both of these makeup removers are safe to use on your eyes so you won’t need a separate product.
